Autumn leaves

Posted: 03/11/2015 at 09:30

I have one of these but it's far too heavy for me and gets heavier as it picks up wet leaves. Also you have to keep stopping to empty it, then start it again. If investment has to happen I'd go for a mower that will pick up leaves. Ours does but it is sometimes reluctant to let them go again again when I reverse up to the heap. Then I have to get off and do a manual removal My default is to leave the leaves, though I do clear most from the 'lawn'

 The vac wasn't bought for leaf picking, I've forgotten what it was for.

Tetley, I'm not a proper gardener, I just like growing plants and nurturing wildlife

I'd plant a sarcococca out as soon as a space was ready. Queue problems here as well

Not sure I'd plant one by a seating area though, its flowering season is all wrong for much sitting out

Shrub ID please

Lovely, thank you. They were beautiful but not pleased with me. I find the next ones a better home

Hi Vic

I'd cut the long straggly bits off. They sucker a bit so I think cutting all the tatty stuff off would make it throw up more shoots

Commonsense and science tell us that what we see here is artificially produced, either by design or chance
